Lili of the Valley and some shopping news :o)

What a busy day I have had today - can hardly believe the weekend is almost over. I have spent most of this afternoon stripping ..... the ceiling!! It is now paper-free and ready for the plasterer in the morning, thank goodness!
Here is a card I have made for this weeks LOTV challenge. There is a fabulous sketch to follow and also the chance to join their Design Team.

You all know how much I adore sketches and this was a great one to work with. I have used this gorgeous FF die cut decoupage with my beloved Basic Grey papers. The usual flowers (and now card candy) and ribbon from my stash with a bit of stickles to finish!

Other fab news to tell is that I have managed to order a set of Gorjuss Girls - woohoo!!!! Funkykits have more for sale so I got in there quick. I was so disappointed when I missed out a couple of weeks ago. I have also finally got my hands on a gorgeous Martha Stewart Doily Punch - thanks to Bev posting on her blog about them coming into stock at The Hobby House .

And last but not least ..... I have been and bought all the stamp sets, decoupage kits and papers for the newly released Daisy and Dandelion range. Now let me tell you .... they are gorgeous!!! The stamp sets are fab and have so much in them - I couldn't believe they were only £5-99 each .... total bargain. Keep an eye on the Daisy and Dandelion Blog for details of our first challenge coming very soon!

Phew, think that's it for now .... apart from if you have any good recipes for bread and water I would be very grateful, lol. Think I better stay away from the shops for a week or two!!!
Have a fabulous evening

Gorgeous card hun - love the dimension on the flowers. OMG you big spender but great minds think alike - I also bought my first MS doily punch from "Dies to Die for" last week ... and some D&D stamps yesterday - managed to stop at 2 sets though lol!! If I'd made it to the DT though I'd have been right in there .. so go girl!
